Regret the following error as I was following Coffey and not Donnelly
Donnelly was in No.26 until 1928 (Thoms 1923 & 1928) but in Thoms 1929 John Cook (fish and chip restaurant) shown as occupant.

one more update for you... from Thom's 1904

Cuffe St

  25 William Coffey, victualler
  26 James Bermingham, plumber & sanitary engineer
  27 J. Woods , fruitier & greengrocer
 
that would seem to show that the Donnellys were not yet at that address in 1904.

Thanks very much Shane!

it's been so hard with this side of the family (my dad's) because no one seems to know a lot! I just get blank faces when I start asking questions  ::) This is his father's family. And to top it all off my dad's mother was an orphan so that side of the family tree is tiny! I have about 400 people on my mother's side!

Just thought I'd update with a little bit of information. I work in Swords and went to visit the new Local Studies and Archives building across the road. Turns out they have LOADS of Thom's Directories! The earliest ones I spotted were from 1866 onwards. They also had something marked 'Almanac' and these went back to the 1700's but I was in too much of a rush to investigate them. I'm heading back over tomorrow so I will check them out. If anyone wants me to look for anything for them let me know!

Anyway, I found that the first year my Thomas Donnelly appeared at 26 Cuffe Street was in 1913 :) Tomorrow morning I plan to track this family rumour that the Donnelly's also had something to do with a hotel in Ballsbridge.

Many thanks, that is very kind of you.

I would appreciate if you could look for anything regarding the Dignam family in Swords, Balheary, Magillstown area. It may also have been spelled as Duignam.

Best wishes,
Dara.

Any rough idea of a time frame? The books start from the early 1850's and go right up to present day. I haven't had to look up anything outside the city yet but I'll see what's in it.

The county areas are listed in Thom's under the main towns - Swords included. The county Dublin section follows the city street listing in the books.

As far as I can see Balheary and Magillstown are near to Swords and if listed would probably be included in that area.

I can start you off with the 1848 listing for Swords - see http://roots.swilson.info/towns1848/img/swor1.html

Anything between 1835 and 1880 would be great.

Thank you Shane. No Dignams on that list but some of the names on there have turned up on certs as witness/sponsors.
